As the worldwide centre of excellence in surname studies, members of the Guild of One-Name Studies research nearly 8,500 names and have a wealth of stories about the individuals who served in the First World War.
The Guild of One-Name Studies is delighted to announce that they have been accepted as a member of the Imperial War Museum (IWM) First World War Centenary Partnership. As members of the Centenary Partnership we will be part of the IWM’s global programme of cultural events and digital platforms to help people discover more about life in the First World War. To find out more about the IWM programme go to their website.
This platform enables Guild members to document the stories from their research, whether from their One-Name Study or beyond, from soldiers serving in the trenches to accounts relating to civilian life during the First World War. These stories are available to be read by all and are searchable by name or other known facts to filter the stories of particular interest. Unfortunately, no one who fought in this conflict is still alive today and so no details of living people are displayed on this site.
